Anti-Theft Method

Discussion in 'Stolen Bikes' started by Richard A Thackeray, 16 Jul 2017.

  1. Many years ago, Ogri came up with one system

    There were many others in the magazine, over the years, but this is the one that always made me smile
    Granted, it wouldn't really work with a bike, far too light..... unless any of you have got motorbikes?

    I actually got into the books by Tom Sharpe because of the cover art by Paul Sample.
  4. Yes, it was

    I've still got a few of the older books, that had Paul Samples covers

    I had the full set, I used to buy one or two everytime we went camping back late 80s-early 90s, I lent my little sister the first 2 and she 'lost' them. :cursing:

    KnackeredBike I do my own stunts

    A while back at a weeknight football game in Liverpool we were approached by a kid saying he would protect the car for £5. I told him to keep an eye on it and I would pay him the £5 if it was alright when I got back.

    On return walking down the street every car had it's windows smashed. Not good news... except it stopped exactly at my car. Presumably they had been disturbed, anyway midget kid was there to collect his £5 which I duly paid.

    However, at the same time someone a couple of cars back who had paid the £5 in advance got back and was none too pleased.

    Lesson: sometimes in life not getting screwed over is luck rather than planning.
